Move AD from exchange server
I currently have 4 exchange 2003 servers, of which one is playing a dual
role and is also a primary domain controller, with the other 3 as BDC's
I now would like to move the PDC role off the one that is playing a dual
role to a new server that I bought,
Can I just transfer all 5 roles across from that server to the new one, or
is there anything else I have to do so that exchange still functions after
the PDC role is move to the new server. (I would like to keep this existing
dual role server as a BDC with exchange).
Generally it's best to have at least two DCs,...Single forrest, multiple domain exchange rights issue

Can an Exchange server be removed and rejoined to a domain without incident
or will attempting this turn my life into a living hell?
I have a strange issue that I can't quite figure out. My exchange server has
recently dropped off of the radar. I cannot see it when browsing the network.
It will reply to a ping and I can reach it using Remote Destop but it does
not show up when browsing the network nor from a run command using IP or
netbios name. Because of this I cannot back anything up on this server.
Wondering if I were to rejoin to the domain if that might help the issue.

I need to move my Exch2K Server to a new hardware. I want to minimize the
time the service is down. My plan is the following:
-Install Exch2K on the new hardware, as a second mail server on the domain.
-Make a backup of the store of the old server
-Disconnect the old server
-Rename the new server to the old name, change the IP, the service is up
again in a few minutes
-Restore the store to the new server
Does it works? Can I freely rename the Exchange server? Will the Active
Directory get corrupted with such changes?
Can I restore the Exch Store to a different server with the same name an...Malware and Spyware against Exchange 2003 + SBS 2003
We have a SBS server that only acts an e-mail/exchange server and it
doesn't do anything else. The server has been running for about a month
or two and we recently ran spyware/virus on the server and found
multiple infections. Couple of questions:
1. Is there any reason why this is happening?
2. Is Exchange executing the attachments on its own?
3. Or are the users executing malware attachments through their
connection in outlook?
Before I jump to any conclusions here, what did you run to detect the
viruses and spyware? If you ran a client scanner such as Nort...Exchange server 2003 access webmail accounts

My server was set up by a tech at an IT tech company and I needed to change
the name of my server. This is a Small Business Server with Exchange as a

(Triplec-server). I followed some instructions to remove Exchange and then

I've been reading here about rule limits (scary thought) but since they all
seem to mention having a Microsoft Exchange Server and I don't connect
through a MSES I wondered if there was a different limit or (hopefully) no
limit if I'm not using MSES.
If the answer is that yes there are still limits on the rules I'm wondering
what procedures any of you use so that you aren't left stuck one day with
rules that won't work because you've reached the limit.

When W2K SP4 was released, there was a problem with SP4 and Exchange 5.5.
I can't remember what the problem was exactly, but I think it was something
to do with the Optimizer Utility.
Does anyone know if there has been a bug fix for this problem?
Is anyone successfully running W2K SP4 on their Exchange 5.5 SP4 server?

I am planning on doing a exchange 2003 standard to 2003 enterprise
upgrade. I want to do the mailbox move method for this. I've got a fair
amount of mailboxes to move. Outlook 2000 is the desktop client in use. If
someone has outlook open while the mailbox move is taking place, will this
corrupt the mailbox in any way. Or if they are accessing their box through
Owa could it corrupt it as well. Thanks
No, the mailbox may hang temporarily, but it will not impact the move.

We have a windows 2000 server environment running a single Exchange 2000

to jump to 2007, but I personaly think it would probably be wise to upgrade
to 2003 Exchange Enterprise server. Ill be introducing the server initally
